In 2010, he's slated to begin the season as the White Sox starting 2B and I wouldn't be surprised if he's listed with 3B and 2B to start the season.
He will only be 3b. Beckham won't pick up the 2B until a couple of weeks into the season.
The reason he had SS elig is because that's what he primarly played in the minors, or he was drafted as a SS.
Yahoo has no real guidelines when it comes to prospects.
An example of this is Marcus Coltson over on the football side. In Colston's first season Yahoo had him slotted as a TE, and Colston made for one hell of a TE in their game too, even though he had never lined up as one.
Yup, Colston @ TE won me (and quite a few others) a championship that year.
Again, almost certain If the player played in the majors last season, Yahoo will use their rules (5 started, 10 played) to determine eligibility.
